  • Description

    Our favorite, essential shift dress. The Georgia is one of the first styles I designed, and the pattern was drafted with universal fit in mind. The shoulder seam and sleeve without an armscye look intentional on all shoulder breadths, the substantial cuff wings out and draws clean lines on any arm, and the just-above-the-knee length works for just about every body.

    This is the dress version of our Georgia Tee, which was influenced by effortless caftans from the '60s and '70s but with less material and more practicality in mind. I also drew on neat, crisp blouses from the '40s when women started wearing separates to work. Architectural drama and movement paired with structure and simplicity - a dress that can go anywhere and do just about anything.

    It hits just above the knee, and the hem dips a bit longer in the back. You can lounge, explore a city, or sprint after a toddler in this dress. Achieve total summertime ease when worn with bare legs and simple sandals, or go for more of a mood and layer over wide-leg pants. Serves as a dress, tunic, or coverup - it's up to you.

  • Material & Care

    Fabric: Silk Crepe

    Fiber Content: 100% Silk

    Description: A washed silk crepe de chine that drapes and moves like liquid. It has a muted, ultra-soft feel with a barely-there sheen visible only with movement. This is an extremely high quality and medium-weight crepe that was custom developed just for us - meant to be worn, not coddled. All of our silk is garment-washed, so it has a lustrous yet matte finish and is totally machine washable.

    Care: Machine washable. Wash on gentle cycle with cool water. Tumble dry on medium heat. Hems, necklines, and sleeves will wrinkle. Press with steam to shape, and they'll return to crisp edges.

    *Silk is a natural fiber and will fade and wear over time, which we love. If you prefer your garments to not show as much wear, hand wash and do not tumble dry.

Beautiful workhorse

I have never been a dress person - this dress changes things for me. Not only is this dress beautiful, it is comfortable and makes me feel confident, but also can be dressed up or down easily! (Something I have heard people say, but never understood until I had this dress lol). I can wear this in multiple different settings (ie bbq, formal dinners, to work, etc) but I also want to wear it to all occasions. I'm definitely going to buy a linen georgia dress next!

love love love

Had looked at ES clothes for years, and finally took the plunge to buy this. So glad I did! Wore it 2 weekends in a row when going out (work event and fancy restaurant) and can already tell it will be a staple in my closet for years. Extremely versatile, feels lovely, and fits great. Haven't yet had the courage to wear it for long periods of time around my 2 young kids who make everything I wear a disaster, but maybe someday ... Was worried that it would be too short, but think it's a great length for me and am glad I got this size.

Love it!

This dress is fantastic. I already have a Georgia tee, so I was pretty confident that I'd like the look, feel, and drape of this dress. I was correct. I'm typically a small or even medium in Eizabeth Suzann items, but I ordered a OSM because I'm short and I didn't want the dress to be too long. It worked out - it's a great fit and length on me. Only negative is that I seem to sweat a lot in it! But it's a dark color (navy) so it's not terribly noticeable or anything...

I am a serial Harper

I am a serial Harper Tunic junkie (the black and natural linen are the best). So, this purchase— the silk Georgia midi— was a break from my norm. I appreciate the casual sophistication of this piece. Super comfortable. Timeless. Easy to dress up or down. I love that it falls just above my knees,

but doesn’t feel like a mini skirt/dress. Great with heels, booties, flats or sneakers. Another ES staple.

Staple dress

Love this dress! I am 5’5”, 160 lbs, apple shape and definitely tend to go for baggy sillouettes- this is like my dream dress. I did get it hemmed about 3” and it now hits a couple inches above my knee- originally it was almost to the middle of my knee, so a little too long. The fabric is great- it is soft but feels strong- not the kind of silk that gets staticy. I wear this dress all the time to work, although it does feel a little fancy for my day to day wear, but I typically dress very casually

Versatile timeless dress

I have been extremely happy with my Georgia Dress in silk crepe. The material is luxurious and of a quality on par with its price point. Also, it is very well constructed and I see it lasting for many years. The dress is very much worth the wait time. I have mainly worn it to work during hot weather, but see wearing it for a variety of occasions, including during cooler temperatures with tights.

Wanted to love it

I’m a busy mom of four and while I’m thin and tall, my middle isn’t flat. This dress just accentuated my middle so I had to return.

Amazing!

I have purchased this dress in both the rust silk crepe and ivory linen and I must say they are both so amazing! I am 5'8 with a bit of a booty, so I find the silk crepe a little short to wear as a dress... so far I've been wearing it with tights or leggings and I get complements every damn time! The linen is a bit roomier and longer than the silk, so I have been able to wear that one as a dress.

Thank you for making such amazing pieces!!

Perfect Black Dress!!!

A black dress is a workhorse in my closet & after my old dress literally fell apart, I took a few months to think about how to replace it. The Georgia Dress in black silk crepe was the PERFECT choice! Beautiful drape on the body (doesn’t cling but still hints at your figure), great length, versatile, and easy to dress up or down. I’ve worn it for date night & as a tunic over jeans. For both work and play. It’s a gorgeous piece!!! And very easy to layer sweaters or long sleeves over it (unlike my linen georgia tee).
